So Kai, when are you ordering an oci ????

Also he's a pet - his spotting blends together a bit and ear set is a little too high. Compare him to his 1/2 brother Stradavarious on the breeders website:

Strad (Woody) is a Grand Ch. - Best Kitten in CFA nationally last year and Best Cat/Kitten in the region last year.

Contact her and see - don't know if she ships overseas tho. But at least you could get on the waiting list. I'm pretty sure she's got another litter upcoming for later spring

He is such a lovely boy, and the name Charlie really suits him Can't wait for more pics when you have him home! I'm going to pick out my Bali variant today and put down a deposit, have to remember think with my head not my heart.

Are you picking a show or pet bali? If the show, its easy to go with head rather then heart But for pet.....its all heart - you let them pick you....unless you have a certain color in mind.

DH only wanted chocolate. I would have been fine with chocolate or chocolate silver . I have a good suspicion that up the road we'll have a chocolate silver boy to go with Charlie....even have the silver's name picked out (its a secret)

I am picking a Balinese variant on the active list, i have applied for a prefix with the GCCF (it takes about four months in total!). The variants are not showable with the GCCF but I will be showing her with TICA as a siamese.

http://www.thebalineseandsiamesecatclub.co.uk/

She is a chocolate tortie tabby point and she is a beauty! I put down my deposit today
post #16 of 28
What is the main difference between the Balinese cats and Siamese? From what I could see, they're a bit less extreme, and seemed to have a bit longer hair than the typical modern Siamese.
post #17 of 28
GK, he is beautiful!
DH and I (well mostly me, I just wouldn't give up the remote) watched a cat show, and this beuatiful ocicat came up from now where and won the show, he was magnificant. He was ready to trade in our raggies for them He said, I love our cats, but why can't we have some like those! He loves my cats, he didn't want a cat, claims he doesn't like them I had to fight to get my first one, now we have 5 and we want to get another queen and will keep a kitten from my queens next litter (if it works out ) and I have a kitten from the last litter that will be a breeding queen, when she has her litter, I get first pick, so that will be 8 cats atleast in a home where they aren't liked
I would like to have one, as a pet, but I think the next cat I get (not a breeding raggie, just as a pet) will be C. Rex, I have always wanted one! Then mabey an Ocicat

Basically the only difference is the length in fur, there coat is longer and they have plume like tails. They are the same colors as the siamese and are blue-eyed. They are pretty much the same. There meows are softer than the Siamese. The variants are short haired Balis and look siamese but carry the long haired gene, they are really good to have in breeding programs because they have very type-y kittens.

Sorry Golden Kitty for hijacking your thread! Anyone interested can pm me
post #19 of 28
My understanding is the difference between the 2 breeds is the length of their coat, and they are said to be a little less vocal. I've never had a Balinese, but there personalities are said to be like a Siamese. I've also read that it was a spontaneous mutation from the Siamese breed (the long hair). Then breeders began to intentionally get this look.

They're different from a lot of other long hairs, in that they have a single coat. So their fur lays close to there body verses having the puffy look. And grooming is easier then other longhairs because they don't have the double coat that tends to mate.

I've noticed as well that their look is less extreme. I think they are beautiful. I especially love their gorgeous tales.

Very handsome boy GK!

Celest,

Your husband would love either C. Rex or Oci's - they both are very people oriented and very active. I think you should adopt a pet ocicat for your husband's birthday

If I remember when we go pick up Charlie, I can ask her which oci breeders she recommends on the east coast since you are in Maine

Thank-you.
I have been looking into rescues for rex lately, I don't care if they are pets or adults, I am not looking to breed or show, so retired breeders, or rescues will be fine. I think the same for oci's, but I have never seen any rescues for them. But, if she can recomend a breeder near me with kittens or retired breeders, I would like that!

Only thing with older cats, I have cats and a 4 year old, so if they have been properly socialized and not agressive with children I wouldn't hestiatate to have an older cat, just as long as it will be good with my babies, (oh and my furless baby too!)

I know when I was looking for the oci, I web searched a few breeders on the coast (plus south/west coast) - closest oci breeder to us in MN was in IN or MI - can't remember.

But their websites do have retired adults for sale from time to time - mainly females tho. If you are not too picky regarding color, you'll probably find one quicker then we did. FBRL (retired friends) has a few ocis on there (again, mainly female). FBRL's website is:

http://www.breedlist.com/retired/index.html

The oci's are:

http://www.breedlist.com/retired/oci-ret.html

They don't have any oci's that would fit your house right now, but you can bookmark to check later

I'll see who Nancy suggests. They do have an oci rescue but rarely do they have any to be rescued Good thing I guess

I don't have any prefrence really, I would take any color/sex that was a fit for my family. Although, for some reason I do like males and usually get them, so if I do go with a kitten I think I would choose a male, I don't care about color, they are all so beautiful! I do expect more retired females then males, I have sold every male kitten I have had as a pet, (I have only sold 2 females to established catteries, I prefer to sell just pets) I could have several females and as long as they aren't related to the stud, he can breed them all so there are more retired females then males, so that's ok, I wouldn't mind a female, I love all my girls. Up until I raised them I have only had 2 females, the rest have been males (dogs and horses too.) Thank-you for helping in directing me, it's ok that they don't have a fit for me now, I will be more interested in the summer then now any way.
